Art: The Unspeakable Language

A couple of years ago, we had the pleasure of hosting some Danish visitors who were touring the US, and one of them was a psychology major at the University of Copenhagen, but was also interested in art therapy.  So we got to talk about it a little while they were here.  Yesterday, she posted a wonderful quote that I had to share with all of you (with her permission):

"Amazed how art (in this case: one gut feeling question concerning art) can work its way to a person´s soul in a way that a 1000 therapeutic words can't.  University didn't teach me things like how to invent language for the unspeakable. Art did."
